Project: Excavator Boom
Location: Pilbara
Timeframe: April – September 2006
Challenge: Analyse excavator boom to assess the fatigue life of the boom
Services: FE Analysis, Strain Gauging

Solution: The stresses in the boom were calculated using FEA and compared with those measured through strain gauging in order to assess the fatigue life of the boom.  Recommendations to improve life of the boom were included in a report.
